A young woman goes to New York to become a Broadway star. She lives with other stage artists and has a secret letter which is her “Letter of Introduction” to a wealthy aging actor.

The story is straight forward and feels predictible. There are a few twists along the way to keep you thinking it is worth watching, but ultimately I didn’t care about any of the characters. Charley McCarthey does make a few appearances that kept me (and the extras) entertained.

If you like old black and white movies from the 30’s and 40’s, you might like it for the style of movie making, the social scenes, and the fashions. For me it made a great background for getting other work done.

IMDB gave it an 6.3 out of 10. I am leaning more toward a 5.
